Anti-Trump protests have broken out across the Philippines

President Rodrigo Duterte on Friday, November 10, held a bilateral meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Economic Leaders' Meeting (AELM) here.

Accompanying Duterte were Foreign Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano, Socio-Economic Planning Secretary Ernesto Pernia, Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III, Special Assistant to the President Christopher Lawrence Go, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque, Armed Forces Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Rey Leonardo Guerrero, and DFA Acting Assistant Secretary Amelita Aquino. Go then sent the image and other selfies to a number of Philippines reporters.

Mr Trump and Mr Duterte met for the first time in Danang yesterday.

United States President Donald Trump made it clear to President Duterte that he is seeing him in Manila today for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and East Asia summits.

In a defiant speech, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said on Thursday that he stabbed a person to death at the age of 16 and hinted at more to come "now that I am president".

"You want to ask a question, I'll give you an answer", he said.

Last year, he said killed suspected criminals in the southern city of Davao, where he served as mayor. "Just to show to the [police] that if I can do it, why can't you?"

Trump said he was looking forward to meeting Duterte in Manila, where the United States leader is expected to stay until Wednesday. The latter part is quite remarkable as on the same day he offered to host an worldwide summit on human rights in the Philippines and suggested that "all violations of human rights committed by all governments" should be investigated.

In September 2016, Duterte used a Tagalog phrase that translates to "son of a bitch" or "son of a whore" while criticizing Obama's concerns about human rights, prompting the White House to cancel a planned bilateral meeting with the Philippine leader, though the pair later shook hands at the ASEAN summit.

It remains unclear whether Duterte's remarks on homicide were in jest.

President Duterte also expressed his enthusiasm to see the Russian leader, noting that his trip to Moscow last May was cut short because of the siege in Marawi. According to a transcript published by the Intercept, Trump later praised Duterte's war on drugs during another phone call in April. It was just over a look.

Philippines officials have praised Trump ahead of his visit to the country, with spokesman Roque telling CNN that the two men were "very much alike in their thinking, language and demeanor".

For his part, President Putin lauded President Duterte for quelling the rebellion in Marawi.
